Ken's eye and other things

Good morning all, well Ken made it to the Retina doc last week. He inserted dye into a vein in his arm and took pictures of the eye. What was dry macular degeneration has now turned into the wet kind and some small veins were bleeding so they gave him a shot into the eye to dissolve the blood. He says it will not help the seeing of the eye but will keep it from degenerating farther. He goes back in a month to let him look at it again.

Well my flowers have just about seen their last days but here are a couple of pictures I took a couple of weeks ago when the sun was shining really bright.
 Click on pictures to get better view and to center them. I have no idea why they are always placed to look like you have not done a very good job of getting it all in a picture.

In Honor Of All Veterans

Thanks Sugar for the great graphic.

This morning as I was checking out at a local store the clerk asked the man behind me if he was a Veteran. He said yes. 
I turned to him and told him "Thank you for serving us and our Country".  He said " you're welcome, I was in the Navy".
She was getting some kind of paper out of a stack. I was hoping it was a big discount coupon but I didn't see what it was.

A big thank you to all our Veterans past and present for defending us and our great country to retain our freedom. 
Sending up a prayer for those and their families also who didn't make it or have gone on before. 
A big hug to all of you.
